Rose McGowan backpedals, learns the hard way not to apologize to Iran for killing a terrorist

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

Actress Rose McGowan offered a “fast backpedal” to an utterly embarrassing tweet in response to a U.S. drone strike that killed Iranian Gen. Qassim Soleimani, head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ elite Quds Force — widely seen as a terrorist, the general had plenty of American blood on his hands.

The hard-left actress took to Twitter to plead with Iran to “not kill us” in response to the drone strike — either she’s completely ignorant about U.S. military capabilities, or she is so blinded by hatred of her country that she can’t see reality.

Claiming that 52 percent of the U.S. “humbly” apologize to the world’s leading state sponsor of terror in a tweet that began “Dear Iran,” McGowan said of Trump: “We are being held hostage by a terrorist regime. We do not know how to escape.”

While such ramblings may require professional help, on a more positive note, at least McGowan’s in touch with reality enough to now admit she “freaked out” — either that, or she came down from whatever it was she may have been on.

“Ok, so I freaked out because we may have any impending war,” she tweeted Friday. “Sometimes it’s okay to freak out on those in power. It’s our right. That is what so many Brave soldiers have fought for. That is democracy. I do not want any more American soldiers killed. That’s it.”

As might be expected, her original tweet resulted in a wave of ridicule not seen since Opie tried to lecture Trump supporters on ethics.

(Ok, that took place the same day.)

McGowan’s first tweet is seen here:

The actress who claims she’s a registered Republican who will not vote Republican, followed that up with another tweet trying to defend her words by saying the U.S. is “morally corrupt and acts illegally.”

“It is only logical to appeal to Iran’s pride by apologizing. I’m taking one for the team. #TeamStayAlive,” she added.

Though, she wasn’t too keen on criticism:

*Caution: Adult Language

Of course, the actress — and Iran — would have been well-served to take note of the fact that President Trump is not former President Barack Obama:

With the anti-Trump media spilling little ink explaining that Iran has been engaged in a series of provocative actions for some time, or detailing the restraint exercised by the president prior to Thursday’s attack, it’s understandable that liberals are freaking out.

Ever in tune with the public opinion and its impact on pop culture, as the left is, it is hard to say if McGowan actually had an epiphany that she overreacted, or if she’s just trying to assuage the avalanche of ridicule befalling her.

As for the ridicule, in addition to “Dear Iran” trending, “Dear Rose” also led the way.

Here’s a sampling of some of the responses from Twitter, although there were plenty of serious replies as well:
